“Artificial Intelligence is almost a humanities discipline. It’s really an attempt to understand human intelligence and human cognition.” – Sebastian Thrun

Artificial Intelligence is an umbrella term that encompasses everything from robotic process automation to actual robotics. It has gained prominence recently due to big data, or the increase in speed, size and variety of data businesses are now collecting. AI can identify patterns in the data more efficiently than humans, enabling businesses to gain more insight out of their data. But is Artificial Intelligence really helping? What are its shortcomings? How are we experiencing it today? What link does it have with social media? And what is its future? We covered all this and more at this week’s KonvoConnect twitter chat.
